A new Community-Engaged Learning (CEL) course attribute is now available. It identifies courses that incorporate community-engaged learning pedagogies. An initial list of courses was identified by the Office for Public Engagement to use the attribute. In the future, these courses will be approved and identified in ECAS.
You will be able to add the attribute to any course that contains community-based learning experiences and meets the CEL attribute standards that have been approved by the Senate Committee on Educational Policy. The attribute was developed in response to students’ growing interest in academic courses that contain community-based learning experiences. In addition, the CEL attribute provides a means to systematically collect data on the number and frequency of community-engaged learning offerings across the five campuses.
